Talk about a mega blockbuster mammoth of a deal! According to one analyst, Google could be paying as much as $1 billion to be the default search engine in Safari on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac systems. I guess they really do have more money than God. In fact, God probably bugs them for lunch money at this point.
That number isn’t just guesswork. They did plenty of number-crunching to arrive at this conclusion. And we are talking about the iPhone, the most sought after phone since its debut, and the same is true of the iPad.
According to Business Insider, if the iPad continues to grow it will surpass PCs in 5 years. At that point an Apple switch to another search provider could be devastating for Google. So you begin to see how that number makes a lot of sense. It will be interesting to see what happens between these two companies in the coming years.
